Safety Jonathon Amaya is the latest free agent to sign with the Cardinals according to Darren Urban of arizonacardinals.com.
The team announced the one-year contract with Amaya Wednesday.
Amaya spent the 2012 season with the Dolphins and made eight tackles in 12 games with the team, with most of his time coming on special teams. He played with the New Orleans Saints in 2011 but was also on the Dolphins roster in 2010 when Todd Bowles was the defensive coordinator in Miami. Bowles is now coordinating the defense in Arizona and he must have been impressed with Amaya in light of today’s signing.
The Cardinals do not have much cap room but have been one of the most active players in the free agent market this year. Amaya is the tenth player the Cardinals have signed away from another team. While none of these signings have been the kind that make headlines, the Cardinals new front office is making a visible attempt to improve the product on the field in 2013.
